    We are pleased to offer you the third issue of EntropiaTimes magazine – EntropiaPlanets.com’s free online magazine (also available as a printed copy by order only, and for a limited time for each issue).

    The first issue of the magazine was published in September 2011 – and became, to our surprise, a much larger success than we thought it would be - not only as an online magazine but definitely also as a printed copy. With the release of the December issue we saw, that there was a growing demand and interest, both for the online as well as the printed version of the magazine.

    This March issue is on 68 colorful pages, which takes us on an exciting journey to the not yet discovered Planet Arkadia, with new exclusive interviews, pictures, info and stories.

    To find the magazine, go directly here: www.entropiatimes.com - were you can also find the earlier issues.

    ---------------------------------------


    The magazine brings you:
    • Exciting news and updates
    • Contests
    • Planet Partner interviews, made exclusively for and together with EP for the EntropiaTimes
    • Interviews with Players and Societies
    • Interviews with investors and MindArk
    • Articles about the game and new interesting features

    Having a printed copy gives you an opportunity to show friends and family what all this Entropia Universe business is about.


    ---------------------------------------


    Interactive magazine
    The EntropiaTimes is created in an interactive way. Meaning, that it contains links to wiki pages and websites. This is the case for regular info links, but also for the advertisements within the magazine. If you hover over a link, your cursor will change to a little hand, and if you click, the link will open up a new browser window. This gives us an even better opportunity to provide you with background information.


    ---------------------------------------


    EntropiaTimes Forum
    An EntropiaTimes forum was created for discussion of the magazine. This will also be where we will add a link to each edition of the magazine to make it easier for you to find them. The forum mentioned can also be accessed directly by browsing to www.entropiatimes.com.

    There are two versions of the magazine. One is an interactive version where you can navigate between the pages by using the little arrows under the pages, and the other is a regular PDF version. Be aware, that it might take a few minutes to download the files


    ---------------------------------------


    Did you order your printed copy?
    If you find that you really like the magazine, and would like to receive a printed copy as well, you can still order but ONLY until:

    Monday, the 14th of March 2011.

    After this date the magazines will be printed in the ordered amount, and we will not reprint the magazine. This goes for all former issues.

    To order, please pay $18 USD through PayPal to admin@entropiaplanets.com – including your avatar name, a specification what you're buying (Magazine, March 2011) and your real name and shipping address.


    ---------------------------------------


    March Contest
    Do not miss out on the contest in this issue of EntropiaTimes. You will find it on page 6, and will be able to win an exclusive spot in the next issue of EntropiaTimes - which will be published June 2011, and themed Planet Cyrene.


    ---------------------------------------


    EP Theme and Conquest System (Forum Community Game)
    We changed a few things on the forum to mirror the theme of the magazine, which is Planet Arkadia. As always the theme of the forum will stay up for a month, and then change back to normal.

    Another change is the Conquest system, which will again contain mobs from the actual planet, Arkadia. As a part of this, the Conquest system has been reset, and will feature actual mobs from Planet Arkadia. Don't miss out on the opportunity to fight against other forum members.


    ---------------------------------------


    We at EntropiaPlanets.com wish you all a happy reading and a wonderful Spring :)

    How to read the magazine:
    ---------------------------------------


    The Interactive PDF File Procedure:

    * Open the file - it will open up in your browser, and might take a few minutes to load.
    * You will see the file as a real magazine, with the front page first - and you can turn pages by using the arrows shown under the magazine. Scroll up and down if the page is too large by using the wheel on the mouse.
    * It is possible to zoom in and out by right clicking on the pages and chosing that setting.
    * Be aware that the interactive file setting is not a 100% sized file, because that would be too big for some screen settings. Use the zoom in and out function - though it is not working perfectly yet.

    The normal PDF file procedure:

    * Open up the file
    * In the PDF program head menu choose View -> Page Display -> Two-Up
    * Also choose -> Show cover page during Two-Up
    * This will show you the magazine as a real magazine too.
    * This file is better, when you wish to view the magazine by using zoom

    Just finished reading through the whole magazine, again. Once more, I'd like to congratulate the E-Team for the ace work they're doing for the EU community.

    On behalf of Arkadia Studios, I thank you guys for your massive efforts put into this Arkadia-themed issue of the EntropiaTimes.

    It's awesome and I'm already hungry for the next issue. :rolleyes:

    RAZER found this awesome free tool, where we can upload the magazine, so you can watch it as a 'real' magazine, scroll, zoom in and out and turn pages (like our dynamic version, but faster and better).

    Tell me what you think and if it's worth investing in ^^

    Lykke, I think that's a bit better than reading the pdf version, personally. So yeah, do it I say!

    I just noticed, that some of the links don't work in this interactive version + it 'threw out' a picture and a text (dunno why ...). I tried again, with some other settings, but it's the same. Before I spend money on it, I will ask the providers why this happened - just to make sure we get a perfect result :)

    But yes, other than that, I like it too - thanks Tim ^^

    Yes, I noticed that too Lykke, and actually responded to this at PCF, so if you can find out what happened and it can be resolved, as well as be able to have active links, then I would say look into it for sure. :)

    That's one awesome magazine, as always :)

    Well done to EntropiaPlanets and the crew who put it together and took part in interviews and providing other content.

    It certainly wouldn't be easy to get it out at such a consistently high level of quality, superb job!

    We stop for all further orders today, 18:00 MindArk time.
    Remember, we will NOT reprint the magazine.

    So far we sold: 141 copies

    And collected: 146 USD
    in donation to the victims of the Japaneese Earthquake

    THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO GAVE THEIR SUPPORT :)

    It might not look of a lot - but many small amounts give a big one - and every coin matters.
